London - Prince Harry is leaving the army, but he's not giving up his work with wounded troops.

The prince says he plans to join service members for part of a 1 600km trek around Britain.

The prince on Wednesday met four men and a woman planning the Walk of Britain, and announced he would be joining them for a small part of the journey later this year.

The trek is organised by Walking with the Wounded, a charity that helps injured veterans move into civilian life.

Harry, who is fourth in line to the throne, will leave the British Army in June after a 10-year career that included two stints in Afghanistan.

Harry has previously joined troops on Walking with the Wounded treks to the North and South Poles.
